Located just off Bruton Smith Boulevard (I-85, exit 49), the Tom Johnson Camping Center Racing Resort at Lowe’s Motor Speedway is a short walk from the front stretch of America’s premier race place. The campground, a short drive from the shopper’s paradise of Concord Mills, is adjacent to the renowned Rocky River Golf Course.
Phase I of the resort opened in 1999 on 16 acres and now consists of 129 full hook-up sites. Phase II was completed in 2001 and added 203 large sites and expanded the area to 29 acres. An open Pavilion was also added that features a large seating area that has hosted camping clubs, weddings, and company parties. The modern restroom and shower facility completes all the needs for a great camping experience. Phase III is currently under construction and scheduled to be completed by May 9. The new expansion area will add 92 spots and increase the total number of sites to 403. All will be equipped with electricity (30/50 amp), sewer, water hook-ups and a picnic table.

Lowe’s Motor Speedway Trackside Luxury Camping
Setting a new standard in trackside camping, Lowe’s Motor Speedway officials revealed plans for a new luxury RV lot that will be located just outside the apex of Turns 1 and 2, overlooking the 1.5-mile superspeedway.
The camping lot will feature the largest motor home spaces in all of NASCAR and give campers a spectacular view of Lowe’s Motor Speedway’s legendary quad-oval. Each space will include 10 race tickets, a 10-foot viewing area in front of the RV space, live race feeds via closed-circuit television, catering options from Levy Restaurants, a concierge service, wireless Internet access and fully-equipped water, electrical and sewer hookups.
The trackside luxury camping lot will feature 18 total camping spaces with three different sizes available. The smallest 10 spaces are 30-by-60 feet, which will match the largest current camping spaces in NASCAR. Two larger sizes are offered as well-five 36-by-60 feet spaces and three giant spaces measuring 40-by-60 feet each.
Construction is underway and will be completed in time for the May NASCAR event weekends. Additional information about trackside luxury camping can be obtained by contacting the Lowe’s Motor Speedway corporate sales department at (704) 455-3203.
